CAPTURING KIDS' HEARTS!
CKH at OES
Olathe Elementary is a Capturing Kids' Hearts campus! Our teachers have participated in CKH training to develop skills for intentionally building strong relationships with students and between students. We recognize that need to feel emotionally and physically safe to fully engage in learning.
What does this look like?
Classroom social contracts
Launches (daily quotes that end each class and day)
Positive conflict resolution with the 4 questions process
Here are our Launches for the next 2 weeks:
1. Don't judge a book by its cover.
2. No beauty shines brighter than a good heart.
I will...Attend, Appreciate, Respect, Grow, and Help! AARGH!
